I've been contacted by a staff member from the Giggle/Snort Awards, an award for original and fan fiction in the humor genre. This year, the award is trying to set up a category for Tolkien-based humor pieces and has asked me to pass along information about the awards in case anyone is interested in nominating their favorite funny stories in our fandom!
The award's website can be found here:http://awards.gigglesnort.net/news.phpNominations close on 24 June,
so there's only about a week left.
The staff member who contacted me assured me that, although the category is called "Lord of the Rings," anything from Tolkien's universe is eligible. Rules and more details can be found at the link above.
All the best,
